Birthplace: Perth, Australia

Already something of an established actor in his native Australia, Heath Ledger first came to the attention of American audiences in 1999 with his winning turn in the teen comedy 10 Things I Hate About You, playing the rebellious Patrick Verona in the update of The Taming of the Shrew.Born in Perth, Western Australia on April 4, 1979, Ledger first became interested in acting while attending the all-boys Guilford Grammar School. He began his career performing onstage with the Guildford Theatre Company and was soon appearing in substantial roles on Australian television shows. The 1996 series Sweat featured him as a gay cyclist, while the following year's Roar cast him as a medieval Celtic prince--and also won him the beginnings of a fan base. After moving across the Pacific to Los Angeles, Ledger landed his lead role in 10 Things I Hate About You opposite Julia Stiles in 1999. The movie proved to be a summer hit, and it succeeded in introducing Ledger to a legion of new fans. That same year, he starred in Two Hands, an Australian action comedy that cast him as a Sydney teenager who finds himself in debt to an underworld kingpin, played by Bryan Brown. The film premiered at that year's Sundance Film Festival. Following a prominent role in Roland Emmerich's The Patriot (2000), Ledger brought Excalibur sensibilities into the new millenium with A Knight's Tale (2001). With its tradition shattering blend of modern slang and music balanced with the classic tale of jousting mayhem, A Knight's Tale served as an exciting star vehicle for the popular young actor. The young actor also garnered a fair amount of praise for his supporting role as a deeply depressed prison employee in the Oscar-winning film Monsters Ball (2001). Though the film did not fare well critically or otherwise, Ledger nonetheless proved himself a versatile actor in The Four Feathers (2002), in which he starred as a cowardly officer-in-training who resigns from the British Army shortly before being shipped off to Sudan. In the same vein, though The Order (2003) was shunned by critics, Ledger was praised for his intense performance as a tortured, knowledge-seeking priest. Australia's Ned Kelly (2003) featured a then 24-year-old Heath in the title role of sixteen-year-old outlaw Ned Kelly, and placed him among a skilled cast including Six Feet Under star and fellow Australian Rachel Griffiths, the Oscar-winning Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, and Naomi Watts. In 2005, Ledger captivated Hollywood with his sensitive turn as Ennis Del Mar in the gay-themed modern western Brokeback Mountain. Impressing audiences with his portrayal of the soft-spoken and tortured character struggling with his love for fellow cowboy Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal), he went on to garner multiple awards for the role, including Best Actor wins from numerous film critics associations, as well as a coveted Oscar nomination.Ledger was busy in 2005 following Brokeback, with lead roles in the period films Casanova and The Brothers Grimm, as well as a turn as a heroin-addicted husband in Candy. His own engagement to Brokeback costar Michelle Williams made headlines and produced a daughter in late 2005, though the two ended their relationship the following year. Ledger had completed his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight (due out in July 2008) and was filming Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus when he was found dead in a New York City apartment building on January 22, 2008. It turned out that his final performance would be the most celebrated of his career. His turn as Gotham City's most deranged criminal helped make The Dark Knight one of the biggest box office hits in movie history, and earned him posthumous nominations for Best Supporting Actor from both the Screen Actors Guild and the Academy.

The Joker says: Enter quote here...Madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.

The Joker says: Madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.

The Joker says: Ya wanna know how I got these scars? My father; was a drinker; and a fiend. And one night, he goes off craazier than usual. Mommy grabs the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn't like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and say, "Why so Serious?". He comes at me with the knife. "Why so serious?". Sticks the blade in my mouth. "Let's put a smile on that face!". Aaaaaand. (Turns to hostage behind victim) "Why so serious?" (cuts victim's mouth)

Casper says: When you can stop, you don't want to. When you want to stop, you can't.

Dan says: I wasn't trying to wreck Candy's life. I was trying to make mine better.

Candy says: I wanna try it your way this time.

The Joker says: We made it.

The Joker says: Don't talk like you're one of them! You're not, even if you'd like to be. To them you're just a freak, like me. They need you right now, but when they don't, they'll cast you out—like a leper. See, their morals, their "code"…it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you, when the chips are down, these—ah—"civilised people"? They'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve.

Skip says: Oh, nice socks, man. Nice socks. Nice socks.

Skip says: Yeah, hi. This isn't a library...so it's ten bucks to browse. You got ten bucks?

Browser says: Didn't bring any money today.

Skip says: Yeah, well, why'd you come into my store, then, asshole?

Skip says: Yeah, this is Skip Engblom and the Zephyr Skateboard Team. Here's our entry fees. Now where's our trophies?

Joker says: Hi.

Joker says: See I'm a man of simple taste. I like things such as gunpowder...dynamite and...gasoline!

Joker says: What doesn't kill you makes you stranger.

Joker says: Madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.

Joker says: Its simple, we kill the Batman.

Maroni says: If its so simple, why haven't you done it yet?

Joker says: If your good at something never do it for free.

Chechen says: How much you want?

Joker says: Half.

Gambol says: You're just a freak in a cheap suit.

Joker says: The suit, it ain't cheap, you oughta know you bought it.

Ennis Del Mar says: Bottom line is... we're around each other and... this thing, it grabs the hold of us again... at the wrong place... at the wrong time... and we're dead.

Alma Jr. Age 19 says: Daddy, do you need more furniture.

Ennis Del Mar says: Yeah, well... if you got nothin', you don't need nothin'.

Joker says: I want my phone call.

Joker says: You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan". Even if the plan is horrifying. If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

Ennis Del Mar says: Jack, I swear...

Ennis Del Mar says: Jack, I swear.

Joker says: Let's put a smile on that face!

Gambol says: You think you can steal from us and just walk away?

Joker says: Yeah.

Joker says: It's simple. We, uh, kill the Batman.

Joker says: Wanna know how I got these scars?

Joker says: Why so serious?

Gambol says: You think you can steal from us and then walk away?

Joker says: Ya

Joker says: Yeah

Gambol says: I'm puttin' the word out. Five hundred grand for this clown dead. A million alive, so I can teach him some manners first.

Gambol says: I'm putting the word out. Five hundred grand for this clown dead. A million alive, so I can teach him some manners first.

Joker says: Why don't you just give me a call when you start taking things a little more seriously. Here's my card (pulls out a Joker playing card).

Joker says: Why don't you just give me a call when you start taking things a little more seriously. Here's my card.

Joker says: Soon Little Gambol... Won't have nickel for his grandma.

Joker says: Soon Little Gambol. Won't have nickel for his grandma.

Gambol says: Enough from the clown!

Joker says: (Reveals the grenades in his jacket) Lets not "blow" things out of proportion.

Joker says: Lets not "blow" things out of proportion.

Joker says: They need you right now, but when they don't, they'll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these... these civilized people, they'll eat each other. See, I'm not? a monster. I'm just ahead of the curb.

Crime Boss says: You think you can just walk in here and steal all of our stuff!

Joker says: Yes.

Colonel William Tavington says: It appears that you are not the better man.

Gabriel Martin says: You're right. My sons were better men(stabs him in the neck).

Gabriel Martin says: You're right. My sons were better men [stabs him in the neck]

Colonel William Tavington says: You are not a good man

Colonel William Tavington says: You are not a good man.

Gabriel Martin says: But, my sons were good men(stabs him in the neck).

Gabriel Martin says: But, my sons were good men. [stabs him in the neck]

Joker says: Madness as you know is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.

Joker says: I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hmmm? You know... You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan". Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds! [Joker hands Two-Face a gun and points it at himself]

Joker says: Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair! [Still holding the gun, Two-Face pauses and takes out his coin]

Harvey Dent says: [Showing Joker the good side] You live.

Joker says: Mm-hmm.

Harvey Dent says: [Showing the scarred side] You die.

Joker says: Mmm, now we're talking.

Joker says: [Over the PA] Tonight you're all gonna be part of a social experiment. Through the magic of diesel fuel and ammonium nitrate, I'm ready right now to blow you all sky high. Anyone attempts to get off their boat, you all die. Each of you has a remote... to blow up the other boat. At midnight, I blow you all up. If, however, one of you presses the button, I'll let that boat live. So, who's it going to be: Harvey Dent's most wanted scumbag collection, or the sweet and innocent civilians? You choose... oh, and you might want to decide quickly, because the people on the other boat might not be so noble.

Joker says: [To Detective Stephens] Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?

Joker says: Oh, you. You just couldn't let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible, aren't you? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won't kill you because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: You'll be in a padded cell forever.

Joker says: Maybe we can share one. You know, they'll be doubling up, the rate this city's inhabitants are losing their minds.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: This city just showed you that it's full of people ready to believe in good.

Joker says: Until their spirit breaks completely. Until they get a good look at the real Harvey Dent, and all the heroic things he's done. You didn't think I'd risk losing the battle for Gotham's soul in a fist fight with you? No. You need an ace in the hole. Mine's Harvey.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: What did you do?

Joker says: I took Gotham's white knight and I brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push! [the Joker laughs hysterically as Batman races off and the cops come to take the Joker into custody]

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: No, but I know how you got these!

Joker says: You changed things...forever.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Then why do you want to kill me?

Joker says: I don't, I don't want to kill you! What would I do without you? Go back to ripping off mob dealers? No, no, NO! No. You... you... complete me.

Gordon says: Harvey Dent never made it home.

Joker says: Of course not.

Gordon says: What have you done with him?

Joker says: I was right here. Who did you leave him with? Your people? Assuming, of course, they are still *your* people, and not Maroni's. Does it depress you, commissioner? To know just how alone you really are? Does it make you feel responsible for Harvey Dent's current predicament?

Gordon says: Where is he?

Joker says: What's the time?

Gordon says: What difference does that make?

Joker says: Well, depending on the time, he may in one spot, or several.

Gordon says: If we're gonna play games... I'm gonna need a cup of coffee.

Joker says: Ah, the good cop, bad cop routine?

Gordon says: Not exactly.

Joker says: Are you the real Batman?

Brian says: No.

Joker says: No? Then why do you dress like him?

Brian says: He's a symbol... that we don't have to be afraid of scum like you

Joker says: Yeah, you do, Brian. You *really* do!

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: here is Dent?

Joker says: You have all these rules and you think they'll save you.

Gordon says: He's in control.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: I have one rule.

Joker says: Oh, then that's the rule you'll have to break to know the truth.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Which is?

Joker says: The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules.

Joker says: And tonight you're gonna break your one rule!

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: I'm considering it.

Joker says: Oh, there's only minutes left, so you're gonna have to play my little game if you want to save one of them

Joker says: Oh, there's only minutes left, so you're gonna have to play my little game if you want to save one of them.

Joker says: Those mob fools want you gone so they can get back to the way things were. But I know the truth: there's no going back. You've changed things... forever.

Gambol says: You think you can steal from us and just walk away?

Joker says: Yeah.

Joker says: If we don't deal with this now, soon little, uh, Gambol here won't be able to get a nickel for his grandma.

Gambol says: Enough from the clown!

Joker says: Ah-ta-ta-ta! Let's not *blow* this out of proportion

Joker says: Ah-ta-ta-ta! Let's not *blow* this out of proportion.

Joker says: Tonight you're all gonna be part of a social experiment. Through the magic of diesel fuel and ammonium nitrate, I'm ready right now to blow you all sky high. Anyone attempts to get off their boat, you all die. Each of you has a remote... to blow up the other boat. At midnight, I blow you all up. If, however, one of you presses the button, I'll let that boat live. So, who's it going to be: Harvey Dent's most wanted scumbag collection, or the sweet and innocent civilians? You choose... oh, and you might want to decide quickly, because the people on the other boat might not be so noble.

Joker says: Harvey, Harvey, Harvey Dent.

Joker says: Oh, excuse me, I want to drive!

Chechen says: What you do with all your money?

Joker says: See, I'm a man of simple tastes. I enjoy dynamite, and gunpowder, and... gasoline!

Chechen says: What the...?

Joker says: Ah-ta-ta-ta-ta. And you know the thing they have in common? They're cheap

Joker says: Ah-ta-ta-ta-ta. And you know the thing they have in common? They're cheap.

Joker says: We really should stop this fighting, otherwise we'll miss the fireworks!

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: There won't *be* any fireworks!

Joker says: And here... we... go!

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: What were you trying to prove? That deep down, everyone's as ugly as you? You're alone!

Joker says: Can't rely on anyone these days, you have to do everything yourself, don't we

Joker says: Can't rely on anyone these days, you have to do everything yourself, don't we.

Joker says: Well, hello, beautiful. You must be Harvey's squeeze. And you *are* beautiful.

Joker says: Oh, you look nervous. Is it the scars? You want to know how I got 'em?

Joker says: Come here. Hey! Look at me. So I had a wife. She was beautiful, like you. Who tells me I worry too much. Who tells me I ought to smile more. Who gambles and gets in deep with the sharks. One day, they carve her face. And we have no money for surgeries. She can't take it. I just want to see her smile again. I just want her to know that I don't care about the scars. So... I stick a razor in my mouth and do this...to myself. And you know what? She can't stand the sight of me! She leaves. Now I see the funny side. Now I'm always smiling!

Joker says: A little fight in you. I like that

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Then you're gonna love me.

Joker says: You know, I'll settle for his loved ones.

Male Guest says: We're not intimidated by thugs!

Bank Manager says: You know, you remind me of my father.

Joker says: I hated my father!

Rachel Dawes says: Okay, stop!

Joker says: Do you wanna know why I use a knife?

Joker says: See I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve.

Joker says: This city deserves a better class of criminal. And I'm gonna give it to them.

Joker says: Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know thing about chaos...it's fair.

Harvey Dent says: You live...you die.

Joker says: Now you're talkin'.

Joker says: I took Gotham's white knight and I brought him down to our level. Wasn't hard. You see madness as you know is like gravity...all it takes is a little push. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Joker says: I took Gotham's white knight and I brought him down to our level. Wasn't hard. You see madness as you know is like gravity... all it takes is a little push. HAHA.

Joker says: I just want my phone call.

Joker says: I'm going to make this pencil disapear...

Joker says: You see, I'm a guy of simple taste. I enjoy dynamite, gunpowder and gasoline! (Henchmen pour gasoline on money) And you know the thing that they have in common: they're cheap.

Joker says: You see, I'm a guy of simple taste. I enjoy dynamite, gunpowder and gasoline! [henchmen pour gasoline on money] And you know the thing that they have in common: they're cheap.

Gambol says: You think you can steal from us and just walk away?!

Joker says: Yeah.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: This city just showed you that it's full of people, ready to believe in good.

Joker says: Until their spirit breaks completely. Until they get a look at the REAL Harvey Dent, and all of the heroic things he's done. You didn't think I'd, risk losing the battle for Gotham's soul in a fist fight with you? No, you need an ace in the hole...mine's Harvey.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: What did you do?

Joker says: I took Gotham's white knight, and I...brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard, cause madness, (as you know) is like gravity; all it takes it a little PUSH.

Joker says: I took Gotham's white knight, and I...brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard, cause madness, [as you know] is like gravity; all it takes it a little PUSH.

Gabriel Martin says: Aim small, miss small.

Ennis Del Mar says: I can't stand this anymore, Jack.. (while hugging Jack and sobbing..)

Ennis Del Mar says: If you can't fix it, Jack, you gotta stand it.

Ennis Del Mar says: "i got a say this to you one time, Jack, and I aint foolin' What I don't know, all them things I don't know could get you killed if i should come to know them" (first manifestation of Ennis' jealousy)

Ennis Del Mar says: I'm gonna tell you this one time, Jack fuckin' Twist, an' I ain't foolin'. What I don't know - all them things that I don't know - could get you killed if I come to know them. I ain't jokin'.

Joker says: Tell your men they work for me now. This is MY city.

Chechen says: It won't work. You're a FREAK!

Joker says: A freak/ [pulls out knife] Why don't we cut you up into little pieces and feed you to your pooches, hmm? Then we'll see how loyal a hungry dog REALLY is!

Joker says: See, madness, as you know, is like gravity; all it takes is a little push.

Joker says: Do, I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars. I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it!
